Lonely Road

Lonely Road

A Poem by lindalou
"

A journey to a place of broken dreams.

"

 

 

 

 

 

As I walk this lonely road,

I listen as the thunder rolls...

 

 

Rain is hiding in darkened clouds

As it threatens to spill on a troubled soul

The sky, in a sad song only the rain can hear...shifts and turns to the rhythm

The brilliance of the shattered scene breaks the path of dreams

Scattering the threads of hope, as lightning bathes the sky

 

My steps falter, I fall...go to where I am not a stranger

On a journey to a place of broken dreams,

a place much traveled

I must not linger, the pain of the heart is cast by the emptiness of the night

This place of sadness is not for the living,

the dead of the past are waiting

To steal the breath of life from my soul

 

They live on the brokenness, in the path of sorrow

I cannot rise! My unshed tears,

the heaviness in my heart that would

keep me in this place of darkness

The burden, the loss too great to bear

 

The gentleness of a sigh washes over me,

in a mist I am lifted

Softly as I have never known

Carried tenderly,

returned to the New Path I had begun

Saved from the pain

the sorrow

the past of broken dreams I left behind

 

God has sent his angel wings to lift me

where I could not stand,

Carry me where I could not go

With angel tears released

as mine can not...

to ease my pain and heal my soul

They live on the brokenness, in the path of sorrow
I cannot rise! My unshed tears,
the heaviness in my heart that would
keep me in this place of darkness
The burden, the loss to great to bear

again like you others --- this takes you on a journey of broken dreams and yet there is a light at the end of the tunnel --- guides you back for the despair and puts you on the road of recovery once more...I quoted the stanzas above...needs a minor change in grammar...good to read your work...
